“Modular substation is cost effective, compact and a smart replacement for the traditional substation with many technical and commercial benefits. It is a ready to install product and can reduce the spatial requirement up to 30%. Reduced maintenance, high level of safety from cyber-attacks, and real-time monitoring are some of the benefits that distinguish modular substation from a traditional substation. Modular substation is an ideal solution for smart cities as well as traditional networks which require technical upgrades. Such solution proves to be cost effective and increase the reliability on the T&D networks with reduced downtimes and power outages.
Aging infrastructure requiring refurbishment & replacement and high rate of industrialization & urbanization are the key growth drivers for this market. The most commonly used modular substation includes 33kV-400kV substations and gas-insulated modular substations.
Leading players in the modular substation market include ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Eaton Corporation (Ireland), Siemens AG (Germany), General Electric Company (U.S.), and Crompton Greaves Limited (India). The report provides their recent developments and other strategic industry activities.
Major economies in Asia-Pacific have huge demand for compact and power efficient solutions pushing the demand for modular substation. Asia-Pacific is likely to lead the modular substation market in 2015 and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR till 2020. This growth can be attributed to the utilization of modular substation in the developing countries such as China, Indian, Japan, Australia, and Malaysia, among others. Increasing investments in power sector from the Middle East and South America regions is also driving the growth of modular substation market.
